GeForce RTX 3060 Ti vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti comes with core clock speeds of 1410 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 4864 SPUs along with 152 Texture Address Units and 80 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this model. It features 4608 SPUs along with 288 Texture Address Units and 128 ROPs.

GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (Unknown) MB/sec
Difference: 524288 (-100%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT should be a lot (about 145%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 214320 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 311280 (145%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6800 XT is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 112800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 120800 (107%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
